they could use a great dottl of money
in their railroad una tlteir iron works ;
that they always had that accommo

Camerons and tho Way they finally
got out of tho scrape is a very singu
lar one. li is as iuiiows :
AN INTERESTING 8TORV.
"Tbe session of tho Logisluturo was
drawing to a close, tho mombers who
had been bought bud been continually
from tho Legitime ; always wanting
bu used, and the Camerons never liked
lo pay out llieir own money. In this
dilemma ouo of Cumeron's fuglemen
it. ri, tuay, oi nearer county, and a
very shrewd fellow, applied to me to
uiuUu) mailers ull right. Ho ulways
pretended to be n great friend of mil. e,
suspjet that I know it. So ono duy,
towalds tho close of tho session, Quay
qiiit ijy wullced into the treasury build
ing, eated bimsolf in my ollico and
begnS a common pluce conversation.
In ll.o course of it ho very quietly re
marked that tho Camerons wero d d
sorrvj that limy had mado any fight
agaiiisl mo. They saw their mistuko
now, land wero very sorry for?it ; but
everyiliiugcould be made right; there
was no reason why I should harbor
ill will ; they were anxious to ho on
(riuiiily terms with mo, and ull I had
to tlb wus lo ucccpt their advances
and I should bu re elected after .Muck
ey'b ono year hud expired. 1 was a
tit L 1 j incredulous, and was not inclined
to accept this story. Put Quay ns
ciiiTcd mo Unit ho emtio from Don
Cameron, nnd was milhori.cd to make
Iho statement. They wanted to have
inn understanding and Gx up everv-
much in tlio Treasury in currency.
!,' replied Uuuy, 'you can easily
raiso it, and it will bo a great ncuoin-
modation lo the Camerons. I tell
you they will novor forget it. It will
make thorn yom1 fast Iriends for life.
Tboro Is nothing Hint you could ask
for that you won't get.' ' i
"'Well, what kind of security will
thuy give mo for this money ?' i ,
" 'I will tell you how they propose to
orruugo thnt. 1 Don Cameron will give
you a check on the Middlctown bank,
and mark it good os cashier. You
know ha is cashier of tho Middletown
bonk, and tho urrangoincnts are. all
mado wilh Mnckey, und ho will tako
this chock as cash and carry It during
his term, until arrangements can bo
mado to tuko h np.'
"After ho 'bad shown his band,
said t 'Ijet Don Cameron como und
seo mo about this.',, e . -."'Now,'
roplied Quay, 'you know
bo don't like lo do this af'ler bis fight
with you. I am authorized lo fix up
this orrangemont, I tell you you had
better como inlo It.' -;
: "'Well,' said I, 'let Cameron come
and seo mo himself. I won't do any
thing until 1 seo him.'
"'Well,' said Quay, 'I am going
awny ot twelvo o'clock lo Philadel
phia, nnd won't aoo hi in.'.' You had
better let mo fix this mailer. I have
got his chock here, and it cuu bo uc
rangctl.' . ,
"'No,' said I, 'I won't davo thnt at
all. It doesn't matter if you can't see
Cameron ; Sum Horr, his" man Friday,
is here and you oan lell Mm. He will
see Cumoron in the morning.' 'Very
well said Quay, a lililo chagrined, !
will do that,' and left. I didn't boo
bim again until Thursday morning,
and Cameron nevur cuniu nonr. On
Thursday morning Quay came into
my room and asked me if I was wil
ling to do thnt lo furnish the money.
'No I replied, 'Cameron didn't come
to seo mo.' 'Well,' said Quay, 'you
ought lo have done that. I lull you it
was a great mistake.' !
"Tho Legislature adjourned and tho
members didn't get their money, nnd
I heard nothing moro of it for some
timo. There was
ANOTHER LITTLE ARRAN0MENT
which Don Cameron ond Quay bad
fixed np which if it hud worked nil
right would have afforded them the
means of getting out of this scrapo.
It was this: A bill had been prepared
in room 42,Girard huuse, Philudephia,
by Hob Mackey, M. S. Quay, Don
Cameron ond Sam Moon. It was to
filuco a Stale tax of ono cent per gul
on on every gallon of oil produced in
tho Stato ol Pennsylvania, and aut hor
iso tho Stato Treasurer and Auditor
Geucral to appoint inspectors nnd col
lectors, and thus ed Iho rnntrol ol

allowed a drawback of three-quarters
of a cent on nil oil shipped from Phil
adelphia. Tito ring intended to buy
up all the oil in lbs Stulo nnd ship it
to Philadelphia first, und Ihcnco ship
it lo uny point whore it could bo sold.
This would allow thorn, of courso,
three-quarters of a cent margin on
on every gallon, and -would havo raised
them a million and three-quarters
ovory yenr. Sam Moon was engineer

who was then in the west, was but

tho bill, ond was of courso in favor of

admitted thut he knew hut little ubout

A LITTLE PISCIIER,
ns Sam Moon would term it, fur Col
onel Thomas A. S.eolt. An act hail
been passed during the Inst session
known ns tho low grade bill, which
authorised Iho Allegheny Valley rail,
reatl company lo take out of llie treas
ury tho bonds of the Philadelphia nnd
Erie railroad company and replace them
with tho builds ol their own company,

Northern Central railroad companies.
Tho object was lo nso tho Philadel

that they had learned nothing by their

rults without any dangor Of detection
whatever, ile accordingly failed upon
mo a, few days nftcr the .adjournment
of the legislature, and opened the con
versation in uouut tins wuv :
. "You 'refused to lake my advice on
Iwo occasions lately, and yob will find

want you to do is just to h avo these

entirely. Lot Mackey tako tho re-
sonsibili(y of making Iho trnnsfor, if

after you havo made the transfer thore

"'I don't soe what connection this
has wilh yoor talk just now of the
treaty of peaco between the Camerons
and myself,' I roplied... 'What have
you to do with those bonds what is
your object?' . .
HOW THE LITTLE PINCH ER WAS TO IINCU.
, "'Well,' said Quay, 'I tell vou frank
ly just whut wo want. You know
that Tom Scott has gono back on Don
Cumeron in two things lately.' IIo
has repudiated bis engagements in re
gard lo tho money it look to put John
Scolt through, and then ho told Sam

to do. Let tho transfer of these bonds

Mr. Scolt wants to get bis bonds, lie

'I replied Ihitt I didn't want lo tuko
any riK, ana mm I certainly would
not inuke tho transfer unless tho At
torney General gave a favorable opin
ion in regard to '.ho constitutionality
of tho net authorizing it. Quay loll,
feeling that he bud i li'oclod bis object,
and so reported lo Don Cumeron, and
Iho ring felt perfectly certain thut
they would soon havo Colonel Scott
between their thumb nnd fingers.
Cut I thought I would have a finger
in that pio just for tho fun of llie thing.
"Colonel Scott ond I havo always
oeen on ll.o most incnuiy terms, nnd
1 did not intend to seo him bled by
lliCKO sharks. I accordingly sent a

to Mr. William Phillips, tho President

to a chnrm, and a week ( r ten days
beforo tho expiration of my term us
treasurer evory thing bad been arrang
ed and the Hoods were trauslerred in
duo form lo tlio Allegheny Valley rail
road. It wus all dono so quietly and
so neatly that neither Quay nor the
Camcr jiis suspected what was going
on, although Don Cameron wus Presi
dent ot the Northern Ceutrul ruilroad
and was required to sign a guurantee
oi the nor.ds.
A PROFANE CAMERONI AN.
"On the morning of tho 1st of May,
when the trensnry was lo bo handed
ovr to Mr. Mackey, Quay camo into
my ollico und entered inlo conversa
tion with Mr. Taggurt, tho cashier.
After tulljing n few moments, ho said:
'lly the way, Taggnrt, bus anything
oeen nono ubout tlieso Allegheny rail
road bonds ' . 'O, yos,' said Tuggarl.
What has been dono?' anxiouslv
queried Quay. 'They havo been truus-
lorroov 1 ho Ii I they havo r cx
claimed Quay. 'When was it dono?'
'About ten days ago.' 'Well, I'll be
d d 1' said Quuy, 'if Irwin isn't tho
biggest lunkhead I ever saw. Don
Cameron Would havo given him ffiO,
0UU if ho had let that little job alone,
und I told him fo. He never will learn
sense,' and rushed out of tho building
nnd posted down to tho Northern
Central railro.nl olliee to tell Don
Cameron this last greu mi-ifortunc
which had befallen them and destroyed
all their hopes.
"Just how Cameron nunlo a rniso or
how they arranged it wilh tho cheated

as lliey hud a fight the next spring

lieving that tho mailer wus fixed up

Well known that Mackey was defeated
in 1S70 by a coalition of billing Re

money to buy them up ngain, ns Well

knock my aluto all to pieces. This

was undoubtedly part of the Stato
funds, bo being treasurer at tho timo.

"How about this investigation Mack,,

"That wus very easily arranged. It
was only for a few days, and the Cam
erons and Muckey could vory readily
ruiso tho money to make everything
square for thnt investigation. ' I have
no doubt it was dono that way. Hut

Radicalism in South Carolina A
Frightful State of Things.
Ourdesputches from Colurabia.Sonth
Carolina, show thut the Stato is in us
bad a condition politically us it is
financially, if not in a worse. It bus
been plundered in the most barefaced
way. by the curpcl-bag rascals and
their negro allies, and a debt has been
piled up that staggers tho people by
its weight. ' There is nothing com
parable in the history of this county
lo tne flagrant rouiiory and ubnso ot,
power by the Radical authorities there.
And now, when llie timo bad come
thut tho respectable portion of tho
community hoped to find a remedy for
the evil through the regular Conven
tion of tho dominant party and a
chango of rulers, Iho robbers havo
overwhelmed tho reformers. Hy pis
tols, bribery and vociferous clamor
they nominated a most unscrupulous
butch of plunderers for nil tho highest
offices in the Stato. So outrageous
was tho conduct of tho Convention
and such terrorism was exhibited that
the best men of tho Radical Republi
can parly wero glad to escape from
tho Statu . House to tave themselves
from serious personal injury. Revol
vers wero drawn, chairs wero raised
over tho shoulders of members, ready
to strike, and bo. Ham sjemed to bo let

not a general riot and much bloodshed.
James L. Orr, United Stales Senator
Sawyer, District Attorney Corbin, and
others finally called a separate Con
vention ; Hut they represent only a
minority or faction of the party. The
majority appear to go w ith tho carpet
